I don't have any recommendation but was curious what trouble shooting you have done. We had a 2001 gasser and it didn't blow cold air because the inline heater valve wasn't closing all the way. On that particular model I ordered a new cable and it worked up until I sold the RV.

What model/year do you have??

We bought our 2002 Windsor in late 2008, at the time the AC worked great. After a couple years it quit blowing cold so I just added a can of refrigerant via the port up front. I must have been a little low since it started working and has worked ever since +6 years ago. Cost was ~$15. You can buy the larger can with the gauge attached at Walmart or other stores for ~$30. I'd try this first before going to a shop, couldn't hurt.

Anyone that works on auto AC should be able to handle it. Same components, same functions only location may vary a little.

Or, start the gen set and run the roof air.

Good luck,

motorhome dash a/c

A large can of refrigerant was added. At no time did the pressure gauge come off of zero, which leads me to believe the compressor is no running.
